Location Aware Entities

Data Intelligence has added spatial coordinates as a new entity attribute type. Analysts can now persist the latitude and longitude coordinate values of an entity. Attributes are treated exactly the same as other entity values.

The Data Intelligence Platform allows for geospatial searching of the new location aware entities. Data Intelligence users can proximity query the entity repository for entities that are close to a specified location or near another location aware entity. The distance is calculated to the point and displayed along with the proximity query results.

The addition of geospatial location aware entities is a major new feature that will help analysts plot entities across the globe.
